Master of Business Administration

A comprehensive and innovative MBA degree to prepare business students for a career in an increasingly competitive marketplace.


The rapidly-evolving global marketplace of today is highly competitive; it demands a new kind of leadership. Students need a deep grounding in business theory along with first-rate leadership skills, an understanding of the changing environment that business operates in, and a keen understanding of human behavior and the ability to motivate -- not dominate -- co-workers. The MBA programs at Golden Gate University's Ageno School of Business are designed to give students the skills and knowledge needed to become a successful MBA graduate in this new business environment.


Traditional Evening & Weekend MBA Program

Designed for working professionals and full time students, the traditional MBA program gives you the opportunity to pursue a designated concentration for your learning style and interests.

This is a flexible MBA program making it easier to balance your studies, work and personal life. You can proceed at your own pace in sequencing courses, deciding how many to take in a given trimester either in person or online.
